Kairos Media acquires the Lightning Pandas and signs Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen
Kairos Media, a leading social media focused digital communications agency, is delighted to announce the official acquisition of the professional esports organisation, the Lightning Pandas.
Founded in 2014 by Kairos Media co-founder, Michael Craddock, and professional Call of Duty player, Shane ‘ShAnE’ McKerral, the Lightning Pandas rose to fame through their unique branding and YouTube popularity.
In line with the company’s strategy to enter the esports market, Kairos is delighted to announce Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen as their first signing. Formerly of West Ham United, the two-time Vice World Champion and 2016 FIFA Interactive World Cup runner-up joins the Lightning Pandas as one of the most prominent FIFA players in the world.
Rahul Uppal, Esports Manager at Kairos said:
“Following their three-year hiatus, we’re excited to announce the official return of the Lightning Pandas. While most people will recognise the Lightning Pandas as the creative offspring of Mike and Shane, we’re now in a strong position to take the organisation to the next level.
In addition to this, we’re delighted to welcome a player of Sean’s calibre to the Lightning Pandas, who does not only share the competitive ambitions of the company, but also our vision for the future.”
Sean Allen said:
“I couldn’t be happier to join the Lightning Pandas and become their first esports player. The experience, resources and knowledge of the company presents me with an invaluable opportunity to progress as a player and build my online presence. This is a massive move in the right direction for me and I’m really excited for the future.”
